Metallic stearates are defined as the metal salts of an 18-carbon chain fatty acid, known as stearic acid. They are commonly produced by the reaction between a stearic acid and metal salts, such as metal oxides, metal hydroxides, metal sulphate, and metal chloride. The product has substantial usage as lubricants, mold release agents, and plastic stabilizers.
